French poet, born in the Isle of Bourbon in 1753, was
styled " the French Tibullus." He was educated in
France, chose the military profession, and returned to
his native island in 1773. A disappointed passion for a
Creole named Eleonore inspired his first and most grace-
ful and natural poetical compositions, " Amatory Poems,"
("Poesies erotiques," 1775,) which were received with
great favour. He went to India as aide-de-camp to the
governor-general in 1785, but returned to France in 1786
and resigned his commission. After the Revolution he
served the public as clerk in one of the bureaux of
the government. His later poems, " The War of the
Gods," (" La Guerre des Dieux," 1799.) " Paradise Lost,"
and " Les Galanteries de la Bible," were generally cen-
sured for their impiety, and have little literary merit
He was admitted into the French Academy in 1803.

of history, born at Genoa in 1668, was also a sculptor.
He imitated the styles of Tintoretto and Paul Veronese.

out a degree, and was an usher in Harrow School from
1767 to 1772. He was afterwards master of schools at
Colchester and Norwich, and obtained about 1785 the
living of Hatton, in Warwickshire. His promotion was
hindered by his rather violent partiality to the Whig
principles, and the richest benefice he enjoyed was a



prebend in Saint Paul's, London. He published several
sermons, "Characters of the Late Charles J. Fox, se-
lected and in part written by Philopatris Varyicensis,"
(2 vols., 1825,) and other works, none of which is of
great extent or importance. Died in 1825. Macaulay
calls Parr the greatest scholar of that age, and speaks
of " his labours in that dark and profound mine from
which he had extracted a vast treasure of erudition, a
treasure too often buried in the earth, too often paraded
with injudicious and inelegant ostentation, but still
precious, massive, and splendid." (" Essay on Warren
Hastings.")

Parrhaaiua, par-ra'shejjs, [ tlatfxiaiof, ] one of the
most celebrated Greek painters, was born at Ephesus,
and was the pupil of his father, Evenor. Though he
belonged to the Ionic school, he practised his art chiefly
at Athens. He flourished about 400 B.C. His peculiar
merits consisted in accuracy of design, truth of propor-
tion, and power of expression. In pictures of gods and
heroes he established a canon of proportion which was
recognized by succeeding artists. Quintilian styled him
the legislator of his art. In a trial of skill between him
and his rival Zeuxis, the latter painted a bunch of grapes,
which the birds took for reality. Flushed with this evi-
dence of his success, Zeuxis called on his rival to draw
aside the curtain and show his picture. The picture of
Parrhasius was the curtain itself, which Zeuxis had mis-
taken for real drapery. Among his master-pieces were
" Ulysses Feigning Insanity," and an allegorical picture
of the Athenian people, or the Demos personified.

Par'rish, (JOSEPH,) M.D., a distinguished physician
of Philadelphia, was born in that city, September 2, 1779.
His parents were members of the Society of Friends,
and he was educated in strict conformity with the princi-
ples and habits of that sect In early life he received
strong religious impressions, by which he was preserved
from the temptations incident to a lively and ardent
temperament. He had a good English education, and
acquired some knowledge of Latin and French. Later
in life, like George Fox, he commenced the study of
Hebrew, that he might the better understand the Scrip-
tures. But his tastes were rather scientific than literary,
and inclined him to the medical profession, the study of
which he commenced, after he had completed his twenty
first year, in the office of Dr. Caspar Wistar, of the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania. He took his degree of Doctor
of Medicine in 1805, and soon after entered with zeal
upon the duties of his profession. In the winter of
1807-8 he became favourably known to the public by a
popular course of lectures on chemistry, then a novelty

in Philadelphia. In 1808 he married Susanna Cox,
whose father, John Cox, of Burlington, was a well-known
and estimable minister of the Society of Friends. There
has, perhaps, been no example in Philadelphia of a more
rapid professional success than that which fell to the lot
of Dr. Parrish. To this result his devotion to his medical
duties, and the remarkable kindliness of his disposition,
which showed itself not merely in his manners but in in-
numerable acts of benevolence, powerfully contributed.
Later in life he greatly distinguished himself as a surgeon,
and was deemed worthy to succeed Dr. Physick as sur-
geon to the Pennsylvania Hospital, to which position he
was elected in 1816, and which he continued to hold, with
the highest credit to himself, for thirteen years. Apart
from his profession, Dr. Parrish took a deep interest in
all benevolent enterprises, and in every movement cal-
culated to relieve the distresses or promote the happiness
of mankind. He was long a member, and ultimately
president, of the old Pennsylvania Abolition Society, in
which office he had been preceded by Drs. Wistar, Rush,
and Franklin. He died March 18, 1840.

Of Dr. Parrish's sons, the second, ISAAC, attained a
high reputation as a physician, and especially as a surgeon.
